Welcome to day 3 of Painting Week. I hope you have enjoyed the week so far. Today's post will feature one of my latest paintings that I have created for the 10 x 10 series. This painting is bright and colorful and full of lots of fun layers.
- 1 10 x 10 primed canvas
- 5 colors of bright paint (should include black and white also)
- 1 Large Black waterproof Chisel Tip Marker
- A few various sized brushes (not shown)
- The best tool of all to paint with ( Your fingers and hands)
Start by adding some messy layers of paint and drippy paint letting each layer dry in between. I f you do not let it dry in between each layer you will only get mud, and there will not be these pretty bright layers of color.
I then started to work my way across the canvas adding a rainbow of colors. These layers are semi-transparent so that the messy layers will show through. This is achieved by using the tube paints that are on the more professional side.
I then started adding come white back in with a small paint brush. I also added a little bit of drippy white on top to bring out the contrast. (I didn't worry about the black lines because I will draw them back in, in the final steps.)
